Our preschool teachers follow these research-based standards while planning lessons and classroom centers. This Minnesota Framework includes: Social & Emotional Development, Approaches to Learning, Language & Literacy Development, Creativity & the Arts, Cognitive Development, and Physical & Motor Development.
This math curriculum is used in our preschool classrooms as well as grades kindergarten through 4 throughout our school district. Everyday Math incorporates math into the day to day activities of the classroom. These hands-on, playful math activities are built to help our preschoolers explore math concepts such as: Counting, Measurement, Shapes, Patterning, Graphing, Number Concepts and Data Gathering. All this learning achieved through purposeful play!
